Report: Clinton Foundation May Have Been Hacked

The Clinton Foundation recently hired a private security firm to investigate suspicions its data systems were hacked, a new report says.

The Foundation hired FireEye recently to look at its systems and search for evidence of a hack, according to Reuters, citing unnamed sources. The Clinton Foundation has yet to comment on whether the report is accurate.

If the hack occurred, it apparently used a “spear phishing” technique similar to the one used by hackers who penetrated the Democratic National Committee. If that’s the case, it suggests the attack may have been carried out by the same entity.

Security experts and government officials have said there is strong evidence the Russian government was involved in the DNC hack. Unsurprisingly, Russia has rejected all such insinuations, while the Obama administration has thus far declined to publicly blame Russia for the hacks.

No emails or other internal documents from the Clinton Foundation have been released online. If they are, they could bolster claims by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump that foundation donors received special favors or access to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton while she was serving as secretary of state from 2009-2012.
